How are you "intelligent" ?

Discover Your Profile

For far too long, Education systems have been focusing on just two of the many types of intelligences. Success in school has been based primarily on abilities in the areas of Language and Logic. If you have talents in areas other than these, well that's too bad because no matter how talented you may be, the School System will more than likely teach you that you're a failure ! This scarring does untold emotional & social damage to most, but some unscarred school-failures such as Einstein (terrible at maths) and Bill Gates (dropout). At the other extreme, our education systems will tell the "highly intelligent" individual that they can and should become a lawyer or a doctor irrespective of their talents in communicating with others or working as part of a team.

I'm not at all for 'tearing the system down' - but I DO believe that our Education Systems should move towards affirming and nurturing our individual potentials rather than trying to hammer out those "square pegs". If this could be achieved, I believe the World and it's inhabitants would be a far happier (and more "intelligent"!) place.
